Marjorie Thomas
September 1, 1934 - March 22, 2020

It is with heavy hearts we share with you the passing of our beautiful mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, friend, Marjorie “Marj” Doris Thomas (nee Molyneaux).

Marj was born in Lancashire, England on September 1st, 1934 and passed away on March 22nd, 2020 at the age of 85. Marj passed away peacefully at the Chinook Hospice in Calgary, Alberta with family by her side.

Marj is survived by her six children, Peter Ward (Rosemary), Ann Jones, Bea Ward, Nancy Thomas (Richard Green), Andrew Thomas (Francine Kreba) and Gail Dirks (Cory) as well as 10 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. Marj is also survived by her sister, Kathleen Preece; brothers, Brian Molyneaux (Kathleen) and Richard Molyneaux (Cindy); many nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and her loving dog Oreo.

Marj loved everyone deeply and, as we all know, would give you a good kick in the butt if you were messing up. You always knew where you stood with her and always felt her love. Marj always put her family first. No matter what struggles she encountered, Marj always provided stability for her family. We always had a roof over our head and food in our bellies. She taught us to be strong and independent. Thank you Mom!! She was the most brave and loving woman in the world and is now singing with the birds and flying with the butterflies.

Marj loved to gather with people and was the first one to stand up and read a poem she had written for that person should it be a birthday or wedding or whatever the occasion. She loved to write the poems and sometimes would even sing them. She loved the visits and get togethers and believe you me we had a lot of them over the years. Marj loved her music so much and listened to it with great pleasure even on her last day on this earth. Her children can remember coming home after school and there was mom laying on the living room floor with her head between two speakers listening to her favorite song at that time. "My Sweet Lord" by George Harrison was one of them for sure. Marj loved to dance and especially loved the chicken dance at weddings. She never hesitated to be the first up and was always the life of the party! She will now be dancing in Heaven!

As you are all aware Marj had quite a struggle the last year of her life. One thing she did through all of it though, was keep a positive attitude and we still all had a good laugh. The staff at Chinook Hospice are a fine example of how Mom drew people in as they would gather in her room and sing, dance and tell jokes. She was quite the lady!!!

Rest in peace beautiful lady. You will be missed immensely but never, ever forgotten. See you in the funnies!!!

Special thanks to all the staff at Chinook Hospice who made moms final resting place peaceful and happy.

On Marj’s request there will not be a funeral service. We will have a Celebration of her Life sometime in the future when we can once again gather and hug and tell funny Marj stories and laugh and remember.

No flowers please. In lieu of flowers please donate to a pet rescue foundation of your choice. Marj loved animals and now can be reunited with many that she loved so dearly.

My dearest mother,

I love you so very much. Thank you for always being so strong especially when there were some very difficult mountains to climb. Throughout my life you have always taught me how to climb mountains, no matter how tough things got. I always made it through all the struggles because I always had you right behind us. You were always a part of me, separate from me but within me somehow. Now I feel like a part of me is missing. I will forever keep you in my heart. I could not have gotten through the hurdles without you. You are the strongest and most loving mother a child could ever ask for. I am so blessed to be your daughter. I miss you so so so much. You have always been there for me and my children and for that I will be forever grateful. You were my rock and always will be. When I feel weak I think about your love and it strengthens me. The thought of not having you on this earth with me is heart wrenching. I need my life directions from you, even though I did not always listen I knew in my heart you were always right. I will always try my best to listen to my thoughts and follow your words of wisdom because I know your wisdom is within me. You will be forever missed. Thank you mom for being exactly who you are. You are the most amazing woman I have ever known and will ever know. You are my hero! I love you with all my heart. I’m happy knowing you are singing with the birds and visiting all your loved ones. You’re now pain free and able to dance like no one is watching. Enjoy Heaven and please hug all the children for me, and Jesus too, enjoy the peace momma. I look so forward to seeing you again one day my beautiful mother. A million hugs and kisses for you.

Mom, I miss you. Love you so much. All my amazing memories I have I could write a book. You were an amazing mom. Through all lifes challenges you always still had a laugh in you. You always made the holidays special and gave us all you could. We did so many puzzles, crosswords, cryptograms, etc. etc. Late nights of trivial pursuit. Too many memories to list. I will cherish them forever. Love you to the moon and back. xoxoxoxox
